Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Monkey Trouble is a low-budget 1994 comedy with plenty of potty humor. A monkey urinates on a floor, passes gas, and closes a toilet seat because of the smell. Some iffy behavior -- sneaking out against parents' wishes -- receives mild consequences, and the main character is mischievous and bratty. Scenes where Harvey Keitel -- who plays a drunken transient -- pursues a young girl might be a little scary for younger viewers.

Sexual Content

Not applicable


A monkey picks up a gun, points it at its head, then aims, shoots, and fires it at his owner.



Social Behavior

There's a clear sense that stealing and lying are bad, but there aren't a lot of consequences for either.


Kenny Rogers Roasters is prominently displayed. A little girl wears clothing from B.U.M. Equipment, and a billboard advertising this company is shown on several occasions. A monkey drinks out of a clearly marked Minute Maid orange juice box.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

A "bad" guy is shown drinking from a can concealed in a brown paper bag. He also drinks from a flask. In his living quarters, the man keeps a bottle of booze next to his phone.
